Getting Ready For Your Lifeline Screening

Lifeline Screening is a company that provides health screenings and tests in order to help people take charge of their health before medical conditions and diseases get out of hand. People just don’t see their doctors in these times like they used to. Perhaps they are too busy, don’t care, or they feel that they cannot afford it.

This is not a wise course of action either because most of the more serious medical conditions and ailments don’t really show tell-tale symptoms in their beginning stages. Common sense tells us that if the disease is discovered and taken care of when it is in the early stages, there is a much better chance of getting cured of the condition.

Lifeline Screening uses ultrasound, finger-stick blood tests, EKGs and other simple testing and screening procedures to help patients find problems that they may not know or be aware that they have. Once discovered, then the information is made available to the patient’s doctor for further review and possible treatment if the situation calls for it.

For example, ultrasound can detect the blood moving in a person’s arteries and that can help to discover possible blockages. Blood tests help to diagnose cholesterol levels in the blood, the high and low cholesterol along with triglyceride levels. Ultrasound can detect the bone density of an individual and detect osteoporosis early on. EKG’s can detect heart rhythm which helps to learn if a person has an irregular heartbeat.

When you make your appointment with Lifeline Screening, the receptionist will give you some instructions on how to dress. Women should wear a loosely fitted blouse or top with slacks. A man should wear comfortable trousers and a sports shirt. Patients will be asked to lift their top garment up in case of an ultrasound or an EKG. At no time will a patient be asked to disrobe.

Patients may be asked to fast for a six to twelve hour period before their testing if they are having blood drawn.

The tests and screenings are the same ones that are given in hospitals and medical testing facilities. Lifeline Screening procedures are well organized so that you will not have to spend more than an hour or two, depending on the number of tests and their duration.
